With a fine sense of sarcasm, the conservative New York Globe, under the above heading, proposes this ticket: For President ■ JUDGE ROBERT W. ARCHBALD Of Pennsylvania. For Vice' President JUDGE C. H. HANFORD Of Washington. Platform: "The judicial recall lays an axe at the root of the tree of liberty." The Globe picks Archbald to head the ticket no doubt, because he has made a record sufficiently no torious to warrant impeachment proceedings against himself in congress. They just naturally couldn't help but pick Hanford as his running mate. The Rights of the Child | A shopkeeper in New York, annoyed by the continued depreda tion* or street urchins, caught one of them, a boy 4 years old, tied him to a pipe in his store, and beat him with a piece of rubl>er tubing. The child was rescued by a man who broke into the store, on hearing the little boy's cries. The storekeeper was arrested. When he was brought before a judge, the latter was Bhocked at the prison er's brutality, and announced that before sentencing the man be would like to have some expressions of opinion from the public as to what punishment should be meted out to a man who had beaten a little child as this man had done. The judge got expressions of opinion; many people wrote letters to him. And with this startling result —that a great proportion of the letters asked the judge to be lenient with the prisoner, on the ground that the actions of the children who play in the streets of New York are such as to drive any person to desperation and mad ness. Writer after writer frankly said that there seem to be thous ands of children running about in this city who are simply little devils. They attack and maltreat aged people; they commit every conceivable depredation that their impish minds can suggest. Many keepers of small shops wrote that their lives have been made so miserable by the unceasing malefactions of children that they could readily appreciate the state of frenzy which had possessed the man who beat the little boy. What a ghastly picture to be set in the frame we call "t-lvill uation!" Children, little children, the supposed embodiment of all innocence, gentleness and beauty, portrayed as little fiends. It seems too horrible to be true, but the letters were from too many people, and from too many ranks of society to allow any doubt of the truth of the conditions they set forth. Who shall be arraigned at the high bar of justice for this griev ous state of affairs? The children? God pity the children; poor, neglected, warped, ignorant little beings, who know not what they do. It is the parents who sow the seed for this ugly harvest—the parents who for their own selfish gratification bring into the world creatures whom they are either too hampered or too indifferent to guard and cherish and guide. There is a lesson, and a warning, In this sad little story, for every man and woman who confront the problem of parentage. That lesson is THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD! The Joys of Pierp | The other day a persistent French newspaper man got hold of J. Pierpont Morgan at Aix-les-Batns and between "le bon sandwich" —of which he sayg the billionaire partook four—and a glass of champagne, succeeded in getting the great man to talk. One of the questions he asked Morgan was: "What are the greatest joys in your life?" Doubtless you think he said it was the ability to pay $500,000 lor a great painting, sculpture, or rare tapestry; or the power to bluff T. H. into allowing the steel trust to absorb its more powerful rival; or the ability to stay Uncle Sam's hand from a prosecution of the Harvester trust; or the might that can create a hand-made panic, or that can make all Wall st. shiver, or any one of a thousand things that millions of money can do. Wrong, all wrong! Here is Morgan's answer: "My greatest joys are In my work, and In my children and grandchildren." Now we don't like Pierp., don't like what he stands for, his in fluence in politics and business, but after all, doesn't it reveal a hu man side to the financier that perhaps we had not suspected? "Work and his children." Why, after all he is in some things just like us plain folks. Even money cannot drive all the human sap out of a man's heart. U. S.
